doesn't that picture look doctored to you guys? the ground is kinda washed out by the rear bumper, and the angle of the car compared to the slope of the ground seems off. what do you think?

I have to admit that I suspected that this was a doctored photo. But I think the manipulation is limited to the wheels only.

I must say that I am 100% positive that everything in that photo that makes the car "unique" is doctored.

-The side gills: if you look close you can see that
they are all on a slightly different angle and the tops of them do not match up.

-The rear bumper: Look at the pattern of the ground at the very bottom of the shot, then look at the pattern just below the bumper - see how its blurry-thats from the "smudge tool" in a photoshop program. Notice how the black background line just behind the tail lights is wavy.

-The front bumper: If you take a close look you can see that the grill is extened all the way down to bumper - and obvious "touch-up" - no front end kit like that exists - however the person did a good job there of making it look real (the way he blended the shadows).

-The sideskirt: an easy touch up as the shadow elimainates any need to blend colors.

-The wheels: the angle of the car and the wheels are off - this is apparent especially in the rear wheels - plus the shadows of the tires do not match the size of the wheels.

Just thought I'd point that out to the people who were looking for the owner - he's probably got a dead stock W123 Chassis Mercedes. You can tell this stuff after years of doing similar touch ups to photos on the computer.
